1997 NHL All Star Game FoxTrax Puck Very Rare
Lot #601

The FoxTrax puck was a specialized puck with internal electronics, which allowed its position to be tracked on the ice for Fox network telecasts. To create the puck a standard NHL puck was cut in half and a tiny circuit board with a battery was placed inside. The two sides were then bonded together so the puck could be used for game play. The puck was engineered to have the same weight, balance and rebound as the original puck. The pucks were designed to last 30 minutes and 30 FoxTrax pucks were provided for each game. The first FoxTrax puck was used in the 1996 NHL All Star game with the last used in the 1998 Stanley Cup Finals.

This FoxTrax puck was specially designed for use in the 1997 NHL All Star Game. The 1997 San Jose All Star Game logo is on the top. These pucks are extremely rare as they were only used for a couple of seasons, on Fox telecasts only. In the 1997 All Star Game the East defeated the West 11-7. Shown above are some highlights of the 1996 All Star game showing the FoxTrax puck in action.
